I almost fell out of my chair... and it's a recliner.

Slashdot AGAIN posted what is becoming one of the greatest cliched titles since "Netcraft confirms it...": Have another look at The Year of Linux on the Desktop. Now I know what the movie "Groundhog Day" was about; Bill Murray sees the same story pop up over and over again no matter how often he resets his newsfeed.

But like it or not, there are some people who will NEVER adopt Linux, no matter what. Such as...

Hardcore Gamers - Never mind that I currently have more games installed on one of my Linux systems than I ever ran in the sum total of my Linux years; the cutting-edge blockbuster titles will just have to remain out of reach for a while. Even if Big Name Brand game companies ever did accidentally spike their coffee pot with enough ecstasy to decide to make a Linux-portable blockbuster game title, the fans just ain't there. Linux has such a rotten reputation amongst gamers that the mere mention will repulse them.
